Welsh Ambulance Service

On Thursday 25th July 2019, Ffion Poole, Sharon Cochrane, and Kath Toms, supported by Christy Taylor, visited the Welsh Ambulance Service in Swansea to help them create an easy-read leaflet on how to do CPR and use a Defibrillator.  We also had the opportunity to use a dummy to practice how to to CPR and also use a defibrililator. We had a great day, and after all the hard work Jason, one of the paramedics, let us have a go in the ambulance car.  We can’t wait for the next visit.

‘Big Accident, Little Accident’ Training

In July Caerphilly People First members visited Springfield centre in Pontllanfraith where they delivered ‘Big Accident, Little Accident’ training training to a lovely group of people.  The training concerns when is the right time to call 999 (only if the situation is an emergency).  The group also talked about their experiences of calling 999 or 101, and how they have been treated by Paramedics in the past.

We also handed out the ‘About Me’ documents and magnets.  The document can be filled in to contain medical information about you (like medication, allergies etc), which you can stick to your fridge using the magnet, and which paramedics can consult if they are called to your home.

Training in Bert Denning

At the end of June, Ffion, Kath and Sharon (supported by Christy) visited Bert Denning Centre.  The centre provides support for service users who have learning/physical disabilities, and mental health issues.  We delivered Safeguarding, and Ambulance training (when to call 999) to the group and staff.  We also talked about screening for cervical and bowel cancer, and how the tests are done.  We had a brilliant morning and were greeted with such warmth, we look forward to visiting again in the near future.
